Well done, sir.

I find it interesting that both your and Sarah Stone's renditions of these characters stand on equal ground in my mind; usually when I find an artist such as yourself who often has what I consider the best interpretation of characters I enjoy, I find myself holding all others against the high bar that's been set. Both your versions are so different, yet both seem to speak to the true essence of the characters.

These ladies are just no-holds barred badasses, particularly Chromia, and I really look forward to seeing what our fine new creative team does with her and Windblade.

And Nautica gets to be penned by James Roberts. Lucky girl!

You capture them all well. Nautica gives the impression of resilience and steadiness, wheras Chromia comes across as a female Ironhide. Windblade herself is suitably exotic and intriguing.

Thumbs up!

Oh, i'm sticking with the ride till the end, RID, MTME, but MTME is my canon title and it's all because of you and Roberts.  but i kind of have problem with the new fem bot characters since i actually see them as a forced corporate act from hasbro rather than a new spirits introduced by artistic freedom. at least under the recent act of events. if it were some other time under some other circumstances, perhaps i'd be a fan of this windblade thing and nautica. but i'm not here to debate, I've nagged a lot about this subject, but the fact remains that i'm still a fan and i'll follow the stories.

until hasbro forces robots to have sex with each other and then i'll drop the whole franchise for good. :)

Windblade has a wicked design. Love that geisha head. Chromia looks so BADASS as well as Nautica. C= I hope we can see these girls in action sometime soon! =)

I really like your interpretation of Windblade's helm. It feels heavy and metal like a Cybertronian helm should and less like plastihair. Especially the blue part that looks more like a crest instead of TFP style eyebrows. >.>

And can I love Nautica forever? She feels bulkier here and I hope she keeps that look consistently in the future. Any chance we'll ever see Nautica and Chromia's full designs posted anywhere? c:

Thank you good sir for bring back childhood memories of a simpler time.  :)

I remember an episode where they introduced 4 female autobots  Lolitaone (hope I spelled it right) the other 3 escape me.  I'm going have to dig out my collection and watch it again.  They were the only female transformer characters  other than Arce that I can remember.

in G1, we have  CHROMIA, ELITA 1, MOON RACER and FIRESTAR... then there were ARCEE, BETA,  and two random fembots called NANCy and  a paradron medic who had no name.

the rest were related to the new cartoon characters such as airazor and Red alert who happened to be a female in the TF animated.

Ah I thought ARCEE was the first but now that I think back to the show CHROMIA, ELITA 1, MOON RACER and FIRESTAR did come first.

that wasn't in the design guide i was sent when i was first working on this cover.  it seems to be something added in after.  i worked on this cover long before that issue's final page was worked on, so there are some differences.  she still has it.  i just like to have it retracted when its not needed. i don't like covering up her face with it that much. it'll pop up again.
